Confirmation Events 2011
May 26, 2011

The spirit was alive and well at our Bishop's Confirmation events this spring. More than 175 young people participated in this important event which highlights, celebrates, and commissions our young people who have made the confirmation decision in their faith journey. We had some new churches join us and a few familiar faces, and a great time was had by all.
We had three different events: overnight retreats at our Conference camps, Monte Toyon and Lodestar, and a one-day event at Davis UMC and CA House, Davis. Thanks to Laurie Mc Hugh and Dan Sturdivant for serving as our retreat facilitators, and to Davis UMC and CA House for their support and participation in our one-day event. Thanks to our workshop leaders, musicians, site staff, and Ken Swope from United Methodist Communications (UMCom). We also appreciate Bishop Brown's time and inspiration at these awesome events.
… Until next year!*
*Look for a one-day Faith Celebration event in 2012 for young adults making their Confirmation decision.
